On a Roll

I’m trying to keep my New Year Resolution of making up the cross-stitch smalls as I stitch them, so far so good. However I still have a couple waiting to be made up so whilst I was in a finishing smalls mood I decided to finish another.

I stitched this little wren just before Christmas, it is another one of my Fido Stitch Studio makes…

Isn’t it cute! I decided to keep it square so I chose one of my soft green cottons for the back. I like to make cord from a couple of the colours in the stitching, as this was like twenty shades of brown I chose a creamy thread and a mid brown. I stitched the cord on using some darker than usual pearl beads.

I felt it just needed a little something extra so I had a rummage in my button drawer and found three little light green buttons which matched pretty well.

I’m getting quite a collection of little birds now from Fido Stitch Studio on Ebay and there’s a couple more calling my name…

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
